in Oak Ridge, TN |
He's treated me for 32 yrs and always with care & compassion, and a smile. There's been times when I would call needing to speak to him & he gets back quickly. He & his staff treat everyone with respect & kindness. The medical field could learn a lot from watching him with his patients. If only all Dr's could be like him. Thank you for all your help thru the years, I'm truly going to miss you. Enjoy your retirement you've earned it. Now go take a vacation! ? God Bless. Connie Neikirk
